Tomato, Tomahto

8-10 servings

tomatoesAh, summer tomatoes – so fresh, so many varieties, so what to do with them?

Of course the most simple thing to do is to make an easy summer tomato salad such as this Marinated Heirloom Tomato Salad from The Shiksa in the Kitchen. Don’t have heirloom tomatoes? You can try the same marinade with cherry, grape or any variety of tomatoes.

Hankering for some chips and salsa? Try making your own fresh salsa such as this Orange and Tomato Salsa recipe from Emeril Lagasse. Fresh salsas are also delicious served on top of grilled chicken or fish.

A great way to turn turn a batch of tomatoes into a summer meal is by making Gazpacho! You can try a traditional version such as this recipe from Ina Garten or my own updated version of Bloody Mary Gazpacho.

My last recommendation for a summer tomato treat is perhaps the most indulgent and a bit more work, but well worth the effort and calories! I love serving this Tomato and Mozzarella Tart for Shabbat lunch or even at Sunday brunch.

Happy summer cooking!
